The recently-completed episodic survival horror game Song of Horror by Madrid-based Protocol Games released for PC earlier this year after a few years of development, and was met with generally favorable reviews from the community for its attempt to return to a classic survival horror style.
The publisher has just confirmed the game is now headed to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 29th, just in time for Halloween. The console release will include all five episodes from the PC version with all the same features and hopefully some updated optimization, like better controller support. There’s no mention of any physical release in any region yet, so this one will be digital-only for now.
October is shaping up to be a pretty great month for horror this year, with Remothered: Broken Porcelain, Little Hope, Song of Horror, and several other titles big and small, all set to release or make their way to a new platform within our favorite month.
I got a chance to review the game on PC when the final episode released a few months ago, and while I had some major issues with it, I’m optimistic that the console release will be able to tighten up and alleviate some of the issues it had. Hopefully, the new version will make for a much better experience, so I’m excited to give it a try on consoles soon.
